At one time I had see someone on E-bay selling a car with one of those. First, you have to think of the safety aspect of having a fuel tank in a place that wasn't designed to have one. Second, you lose trunk space. Third, the more fuel you are carrying, the more weight. So your fuel economy will decrease. Plus, who wants to spend 20 minutes at the pump filling up 40 gallons of fuel.
